Hot and humid weather returned to Southern New England on Wednesday.
Some people sought relief at Scarborough Beach in Narragansett.
"I've been out of the country for about a year in a landlocked country in Armenia. So, it's really nice being back here on a Rhode Island beach and back to this nice weather back home," said Kris Giragosian of North Scituate.
Kelly DeGiovanni of Hope Valley went to the beach with her daughter.
"I was waiting for the tourists to leave so I can enjoy the beach. Now it's officially my turn," she said.
Even though there are snow blowers stockpiled at Lowe's, a blizzard was the last thing on anyone's mind walking around outside the Rhode Island School of Design.
Andrew Stewart, a student at the school from Huntsville, Ala., said with a wink, "You have to be prepared."
T.F. Green Airport recorded a high temperature of 92 degrees Wednesday, but it was short of the record of 100 degrees set in 1983.
A heat advisory for Bristol and Plymouth counties in Massachusetts expired at 6 p.m.
It will remain muggy on Thursday, but the highs will range between 78 and 83 degrees. A cold front will pass Thursday night bringing dry, cool air for the weekend.
The heat and the humidity could lead to heat illnesses. The weather service said people should avoid prolonged work in the sun or poorly ventilated areas, drink plenty of water, and seek shelter where there's air conditioning.
Neighbors and relatives susceptible to heat illness should be checked on. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 911.
